CD-ROM XA - CD-ROM Drives - Transfer Rates
... Constant angular velocity (CAV) drives give speeds up to 30× at the outer edge of the disc with the same rotational speed as a standard constant linear velocity (CLV) 12 ... However due to the nature of CAV (linear speed at the inner edge is still only 12×, increasing smoothly in-between) the actual throughput increase is less than 30/12 ... To maintain this linear velocity as the optical head moves to different positions, the angular velocity is varied from 500 rpm at the inner edge to 200 rpm at the outer edge ...
One Dimensional Analysis of Gas Flow in Rocket Engine Nozzles
... at the nozzle throat, where the cross-sectional area is the smallest, the linear velocity becomes sonic ... the cross-sectional area then increases, the gas expands and the linear velocity becomes progressively more supersonic ... The linear velocity of the exiting exhaust gases can be calculated using the following equation where = Exhaust velocity at nozzle exit, m/s = absolute temperature ...
Insect Wing - Physiology - Hovering - Power Output
... the moment of inertia of the wing and ωmax is the maximum angular velocity during the wing stroke ... The maximum angular velocity, ωmax, can be calculated from the maximum linear velocity, νmax, at the center of the wing During each stroke the center of the wings moves ... Therefore The velocity of the wings is zero both at the beginning and at the end of the wing stroke, meaning the maximum linear velocity is higher than the average velocity ...
Gas Chromatography - Methods - Carrier Gas Selection and Flow Rates
... The carrier gas linear velocity affects the analysis in the same way that temperature does (see above) ... The higher the linear velocity the faster the analysis, but the lower the separation between analytes ... Selecting the linear velocity is therefore the same compromise between the level of separation and length of analysis as selecting the column temperature ...
